Does anyone have a good entomology book or website that they use? I know there are several out there (books). I was wondering which one's you liked the best?

Trout and Their Food, by Dave Whitlock is the book that was given to me when I first got into fly fishing.

general books are good, but you should also look for regional books to based on where you primarily fish.

I had the opportunity to hear Rick Hafele talk. He's from the Northwest so he tends to focus on the Western US. Here's a link to his website.
